Hi,

I am a 41 year old mum with 2 DS and DH. I have been suffering from Binge Eating Disorder since I was a primary school, probably around the age of 8 or 9 from looking at photos. I was a plump child and my mum put me on my first diet at 14 and I think there lies the problem! I have been on WW, SW and a few other faddy type diets and not unsurprisingly I gained weight after each of these failed. I am now about 3-4 stone overweight and have just totally given up on trying to actually lose weight, at the moment I would just be happy not putting any more on. Above all and even above the weight and body image issues, I would just like to be able to stop Binge Eating as it is seriously screwing up my life and getting in the way of work and family life. I binge eat almost every day at the moment and the emotional and financial impact is becoming serious now not to mention the health implications. Thankfully, I am no longer bulimic, so that is indeed a victory but I am still left with the Binge Eating Disorder [BED]. xxx :-)
